Otley broker Nick meets princes at charity day
9:34am Friday 4th October 2013 in News
A broker from Otley helped royalty strike some big deals at his firm’s remembrance charity day.
Nick Thompson mentored Prince Harry when he and Prince William visited the BGC Partners brokerage in London.
The princes secured a record trade for 25 billion euros during their hour-long try at being brokers, but still found time to poke fun at each other.
Mr Thompson described Prince Harry as “great, very laid back” and said he took to the trading world “very well”.
The royal visit was part of the firm’s fundraising activities in memory of its 658 employees who died in the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre, New York. The money raised at the charity day is shared between several organisations.
